"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The LJ5000 is probably the closest in terms of equal or better functionality - but it ain't exactly cheap.
The Laserjet 6L superceded the 5L. I think the next model in line is the Laserjet 1100. All three models sold/sell for around $399.00 retail.
